FIRST LOOK: NAOMI WATTS AS MARILYN MONROE

THE ENQUIRER has the "first look" of Oscar winner NAOMI WATTS as screen legend MARILYN MONROE.

French web site Allocine in the marketing blitz of Cannes Film Fest promotion has leaked the "first" pic of Naomi as the tragic blonde legend.

Yet The ENQUIRER has learned that the image Allocine is using to promo the new flick is  a photo of an image, which was actually the cover of Madame magazine from January 2009 in which Watts dressed up as MM.

The Norma Jean biopic is called Blonde based on the novel by Joyce Carol Oates and is directed by the same auteur that brought The Assassination of Jesse James By the Coward Robert Ford to the screen.

No word yet who will be playing some of the key men in Marilyn's life like Joe DiMaggio, Arthur Miller and The Kennedy Brothers - John and Bobby.
